Hi there
Question -- Why shouldn't it -- it's only a Mathematical Puzzle -- albeit a complicated one -- which has a known algorithm leading to a real solution.

Now if you want an example of a really simple proposition but took around 200 years to find an answer have a look at Fermat's Last theorem -- this tiny seemingly simple problem took the best mathematical minds around 200 years to solve - and the final solution needed mathematical foundations and techniques that hadn't even been THOUGHT of in Fermat's time -- some have only been around for less than 20 years.

Have fun with this.

Well Thanks jimbo lol I really didn't expect anything like your reply. I just thought it was kinda neat the fact someone took (or had) the time to construct this machine that once connected to the Nokia and app could rotate and twist the cube and figure out the sequence. After reading through the material you posted I'm like banging my head against the wall,going WOW. Fabe

Hi there
that's the power of the Internet -- once you start something there's no telling where it will end.
